Irises, Irises, Irises

I think the photos speak for themselves.

Irises from our amazing gardening neighbor.

Irises from a friend.

I like to bring some of the grape Kool-Aid irises from our amazing gardening neighbor into the house so we can enjoy their scent more and I thought the dark purple irises from a friend would add some drama.

I have some peach irises from our amazing gardening neighbor that haven't opened yet.


  1. We moved to current location about 6 years ago. Before that we lived in Michigan and had a rustic fence lined with irises just like in the first picture here. I have never lost the wonder of the look of light lavender flowers against the weathered boards.

  2. Rebecca,
    Such a nice memory. Thank you for sharing it. I'm glad you like that photo.
